Smokymtnhiker: It can't record 4K internally so it requires additional equipment? That's a joke, right?

@Tone Row: From Canon's USA web site: "The EOS-1D C is an HD video powerhouse providing cinematographers 4K video capture in a single unit, with no need for external power or recording devices." (It has an "18.1 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor".)

venancio: a 12mp pro gear... what if canon or Nikon come up with an 18-24mp counter offer, would this put A7s as yesterday's dream? anyway, there's too many new gears coming within this year that i'll just wait a little longer before making a move, but boy, can sony really churn up a lot of new sensor ideas! many is a lot! : )

Canon already has a Movie DSLR with an 18MP full frame sensor, their 1D C (Cinema EOS).

I'm not part of the target market/audience for this product, so it can't be any good. :-)

The perfect camera for taking photos of Dalmatians. :-)

On Shockproof flagship: Olympus 'drops' new Tough TG-3 article (106 comments in total)

Freezeproof to +14F? Here, that's "short sleeved shirt weather". :-)

(This winter, it got down to -23F or so.)

Marty4650: The new Olympus marketing strategy is now clear.

They are moving to the high end of each market segment. OM-Ds rather than Pens.... Stylus cameras rather than cheap P&S models. They are doing exactly what they need to do to survive in a mass market that is being eaten alive by smart phones.

I think they are making good chioices.

My understanding is that both travelzoom/superzoom and toughcam compacts sell well, so this dual announcement makes sense. (You can't superzoom your cellphone, and cellphones aren't tough.)

On Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue article (175 comments in total)

Spots are a feature, not a defect. They make your photos unique. :-)

It's nice to see children "being human", rather than being glued to a screen.

(Time for me to go for a walk in the park, with my cell phone turned off.)

What's the DxOMark Sensor Score of the camera that took these pictures? That's what matters the most. :-)

Olympus should make one of these. All it would take is a minor modification of one of their endoscopes. :-)

On Sony Australia releases a3500 with new kit lens article (144 comments in total)

Another mirrorless camera with DSLR Envy. Since you can't beat them, pretend to be them.

Sony lists the a3000 on their "Alpha DSLR Cameras" web page, because their goal is to deliberately mislead uninformed customers.

(The even worse a3500 isn't available here, yet.)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (491 comments in total)

Don't most superzoom buyers shoot JPEGs?

"JPEG images are over-sharpened and over-processed" should disqualify this camera from getting a Gold Award.

No, Kodak isn't reborn. Now, it's just a hollow brand name, owned by an obscure company.

On Am I missing something here? article (637 comments in total)

Nikon could have saved R&D money, and significantly improved IQ, by making an APS-C mirrorless camera instead of their Nikon 1 line. Nikon already uses excellent APS-C sensors, and will have to improve their DSLR Live View AF anyway.

The Nikon 1 uses a small sensor, but the body is the same size as an APS-C mirrorless camera. I suppose Nikon 1 lenses are smaller, but still...

In reply to:

Donnie G: Nikon's corporate bean counters are showing us how to turn cost cutting into a "death by a thousand cuts". If Nikon doesn't find a partner outside of the camera business to merge with soon, then they may not survive long term after all. Apple or Google might be interested in acquiring a camera company, and Nikon would be a good fit for either one of them. Well, that's my best guess anyhow.

@Scottelly: Nikon's current stock price is US$17.80, down from a 52 week high of US$27.50. Nikon's fiscal year ends March 31st, so we will know the truth of the matter pretty soon.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (491 comments in total)

The "Conclusion - Cons" list contains significant flaws should have prevented this camera from getting a Gold Award.

DPR should stick to writing excellent reviews, and forget about giving an Award at the end. Awards have become meaningless.

The perfect marketing slogan for Nikon to sell this in the USA:

I don't doubt that China's motives were political, but their complaint was valid nonetheless.

The Conclusion - Cons list was pretty short. DPR needs to work harder, to find more Cons. :-)

On Nikon D610 Review preview (328 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: "CHINA - Industrial and commercial authorities have launched a probe into Nikon China after the company was accused by China Central Television of selling defective products.

Many consumers have complained of dust buildup on the image sensor of the Nikon D600 camera, CCTV said on its annual 3/15 Gala news programme on Saturday."

"Many D600 users including Du have asked for a refund or a free upgrade to the newer model D610, but Nikon has refused their demands, even though some D600 owners in the United States have been offered a free upgrade to the D610, according to CCTV."

http://news.asiaone.com/news/science-and-tech/nikon-china-probe-launched-after-cctv-report-defective-products

@sandy b: DPR's article mentions both the D600 and D610. The news item I posted mentions both the D600 and D610. I can point you to a reading comprehension course if you are having trouble finding one. :-)
